  1. Try Discovery Wines on Ave B, at 2nd ST. I haven't been in a minute, but always found intriguing and affordable bottles with a speciality in small bottlings and natural wines. https://www.discoverywines.com/valuewines
  2. Eater as a whole has had a bad case of Sietsemaitis, just no longer bothering to fact check or even google anything. *Not to be too pompous*, but I was prodded to read the Koloman write up describing a "triple creme" souffle made with "Pleasant Ridge Cheddar".

  9. You need to look at the cans in the Goya aisle.
  10. Man I don't want to argue this, and i have no horse in the game, but they are running physical stores, successfully some would say. And have just brought on a lead executive from Tesco to be SVP of physical stores. They are going to make a go of this and I wouldn't bet against their capital or ability to run a zero margin business ad infinitum. Read the linked article if you haven't.
  11. Yes, but Amazon Fresh stores are not delivery services- they are actual physical stores- and there are about to be alot more of them.
  12. My guess is they start converting WF To Amazon Fresh Stores. It was a market intelligence and real estate deal all along.
  13. "Leveraging the lessons from its $13 billion acquisition of Whole Foods Market in 2017, and continuing to focus on ruthless execution and experimentation, Amazon is on the cusp of transforming grocery with what is expected to be an acceleration of openings for its Amazon Fresh format this year. " "Last month, in a second year dominated by the COVID-19 pandemic, Amazon cemented its leadership position in dunnhumby’s Retailer Preference Index (RPI) for U.S. grocery by landing the No. 1 and the No. 5 spots in the ranking.
